Off The Cuff: Biarritz

Christine Drinan + Regina DeCicco - Biarritz Podcast Episode

Biarritz + San Sebastian: Kissing Cousins

No, it’s not that kind of podcast. Instead, Regina and Christine are back after tearing it up on their travels, and they’re talking Biarritz. Bia-what do you say? Biarritz, the lesser-known (French) cousin of Spanish foodie mecca San Sebastian.  Biarritz is located on the Southwestern coast of France, about 35 minutes from the Spanish border. This is a unique destination because the tourists who predominantly frequent the area are French. We know; it’s a novelty as Americans take over France or any destination for that matter during the high season of travel. However, Biarritz is the rare low-key destination where you can still get an authentic French experience.

The Cousin to San Sebastian

There are similarities to its cousin, San Sebastian, but Biarritz is distinctly French. Mornings start with fresh baguettes that you butter up, or even just eat butter straight up, in the morning, with a side of croissant. The pace of Biarritz is low-key, and go with the flow of the day. There are no hectic schedules to meet or big tours to take. You go to Biarritz and you don’t need a vacation after your vacation. You are rested and reset, and ready to go.

Meal time is an occasion where you sit down to multi-course lunch and dinners, versus San Sebastian where it’s all about the pinxtos. There is so much to uncover about Biarritz.  Regina shares the inside foodie and art look of a destination that’s prime to put on your list now.
